Great Re-Mastered Best Of

"Just to "re-clear" up anything that's been posted before Oct. 2004. This CD IS in fact REMASTERED. Is says "Digitally Remastered from the original master tapes" on the sleeve. 1992. It does sound awesome. Yes did re-remastered everything in their catalog in 2003 but this CD sounds great. It has everything a first time buyer of YES would need to get started. Perfect for the beginner. All the hits and more. Excellent mastering and nice booklet. Even though this was released as a "baby" of a boxed set, I feel it is much better. Not much 80's stuff here. It has a well rounded classics best of that will satisfy the hungry Yes fan."

"Just to clear up what others have missed. This compilation is simply a "highlights" collection from the YesYears Box set, released in 1991. And it is NOT REMASTERED.While it does provide a nice retrospective of the band, it fails to pull any of the unreleased tracks from the box set, which is now out of print. The Rhino re-issues (with bonus tracks) put this disc and the YesYears box set on the "obsolete" list, as most of the unreleased tracks are now on the re-issues. I say most.If you have the YesYears box set, there is no reason to own this."
A Sweeping Overview Of YES

"This 2 CD set has a little bit of everything from the long and diverse career of the progressive rock group YES. Granted, Jon Anderson, is vocalist on the tracks, but other than that it is often hard to tell that your are listening to the same group from song to song. It's an interesting listen, and given that most songs are presented in chronological order, that alone will this collection to make more sense. Sadly (or happily depending on your point of view) only 2 songs from the groups popular 1980's output is included and those were likely best left off because they sound sorely out of place. This is a great starting point, but buy the individual albums instead. In most cases, you won't regret it."
